Cath Update 3

Emma is done with her cath and stable.  They were working on getting her extubated.  We will be going to the PICU due to crowding in the CVICU.  We are slightly disappointed in this, but one of her CVICU docs is on that floor, so that makes us feel better.  

We received a lot of information and will divulge that info as we process it more.  Things look pretty much the same as they did 2 1/2 years ago.  She has higher pressures (20s) and has developed massive amounts of collaterals that are working in her favor right now.  The Fontan is not in her best interest. 

In the positive, her lungs looked better, her PAs looked good, and her heart is pumping well.  

We will be speaking and consulting several people over the next few weeks to determine the best route for our girl.  

Please pray for a continued smooth recovery and an uneventful few days of recovery.

Pray for wisdom for Scott and I as we make life-changing decisions for her.

Pray for all the doctors consulted that they will be open, honest, and helpful.

God is good!  All the time!
